The landscape around Newfoundland is very rugged,often with steep rock cliffs of slate running in sheets into the sea below and jagged edges poking up through the water as if they were the protective fortress around the cliff.
This is Savage Cove. I'm sure some of these rocks were what gave the place its name. It has a small rocky beach surrounded by these dark grey shards of rock on both sides with the horizon open forever. Except on this day the horizon melted into the sea and sky with a fog bank sitting on the edge.
This is the start of the piece. I wanted to capture the greyness of the day, the water, the rocks but still give a sense of water and sky. The base colours are there, time to add some detail now. Its acrylics on 8 x 10 canvas board.
